Let me tell you a little story.
Once upon a time not too long ago, you moved. You don’t know the place you moved, you don’t know what the general populace is like and the moving truck hasn’t shown up yet (aka your pencil holder and phone charger are still at your old desk cause you forgot them when you packed your copy box for moving). But you need to survive.
What do you do?
You make friends and you make them quick. Because otherwise you won’t survive. And you don’t want that, now do you?
No. You don’t. Because no friends = death and everyone knows that death = a real downer.
So make sure you make new friends when you move cubicles. Otherwise, it ain’t gonna be much fun. And work already doesn’t really lend itself to the whole “fun” piece. Plus, there’s probably good people where you’re moving (and they chased off whoever was there before you to make space for another excellent member of the team. So everyone wins.).
If you need something to break the ice, consider the hand-crafted sign below as a way into the hearts of your coworkers through sheer pity:
So go get ’em, kid. Go make friends as the new kid on the block.
